I finally got my QSL card designed and printed. Its not perfect, and there are already things I want to change, but since I only print 40 at a time that wont be a problem.
Here is what it looks like right now (all the contact details are on the back so that I could maximize the front with pictures).
|My Current QSL Card
In the field I use Ham Log on my iPhone to record all the contacts. I love this little app. It has everything I need for portable operations. It can even upload straight to eQSL - although I have decided that I am going to be a direct and LOTW QSLer ONLY. I just don't really see the point of eQSL - but if I change my mind in the future I can always start uploading again down the road.
While Ham Log works good for logging in the field, I also want something on my computer at home as my main log. I have decided I am going to go with ACLog. ACLog will import the ADIF file that I can export from Ham Log, so that will be nice and simple. ACLog also makes uploading to LOTW a snap - which is a big bonus. It can also print address labels for QSL cards - which would also be a nice feature if I have more than a few per day.
So that is my plan right now, as always it is subject to change!
How do you handle logging for your operations? I would be interested to hear, just leave a comment below.
